    We are planning to implement this functionality in PI Vision, however, it has not yet been planned for a specific release. This is a high priority symbol for us based on the overwhelming feedback and we are evaluating where we can place this on the product roadmap.

  2. Support multiple time ranges for trends on a display

    Have the ability to support multiple time ranges for trends on a display.  For example a trend might be configured as showing the last 8 hours, another one as the last 7 days, and another one the last month.

  3. Ad-hoc trend with multiple selected attributes

    Build trend with multiple traces based on a display data (for instance, from a table). PI Vision user should be able to select multiple items on the table and then trend them on a single ad-hoc trend to compare. The ad-hoc trend should appear in a pop-up window (which you can move) in the same browser tab and the user should be able to switch between the main screen and the ah-hoc trend window to drag and drop more attributes from tables and value symbols on the screen. It's very important to see both ad-hoc trend and the main display…

    An ad-hoc trending feature is planned for PI Vision 2019 and will support selection of attributes from displays or from a search to add to an ad-hoc trend for analyzing data and investigating issues on the fly.

  4. Trend: Multiple Trend Cursors

    As a process engineer, it is helpful to see values at several points of interest on a trend at the same time.

    The ability to add multiple trend cursors to trends on PI Vision displays is planned for the PI Vision 4.x release.

    The request for statistics between multiple cursors is now being tracked in a separate item. If you are interested in this functionality, you can vote/comment on it here: https://feedback.osisoft.com/forums/320517/suggestions/36142918

    Users who had previously indicated that they were interested in statistics between cursors have automatically been added to the new item.

  5. Print a display as a report

    Be able to print a display to be used as a 'report'. Include printing / saving as a .pdf. Consider an option to print the colors so it looks good on white paper.

  6. Allow the PI Vision Display Utility to export the configuration to a file and import from a file

    The current (2017) version of the PI Vision Display Utility requires both environments (source & target) to be connected. There is a need to be able to export and import those displays between systems that are not connected.
    If not exported to a file, it could, for example, use PI Web API to use the REST endpoint to export the display configuration and vice-versa.

  7. Support renaming of AF elements and attributes

    PI Coresight does not support the renaming of AF elements or attributes or the movement of them within the hierarchy. After renaming or moving these objects, symbols referencing them will show No Data in PI Coresight.

  9. Integrate PI Manual Logger into PI Vision

    PI Manual Logger is a product in need of a major upgrade. The web interface is a step in the right direction. Integration into Vision would be a big plus and give very good convergence between the two technologies.

    A migration tool to migrate PI ProcessBook displays to native PI Vision displays is currently in development for the upcoming release of PI Vision 2019. This will also include functionality to analyze your ProcessBook displays ahead of the migration to determine which displays are using features like VBA that will not be supported in PI Vision.

  12. Manually Enter Data for Asset (Element) Attribute

    Be able to manually enter data into an AF/Element attribute from a PI Vision display.

  13. Table: Event Comparison Table

    Be able to compare attributes from multiple similar events against each other in a table.

    User Story: As a process engineer, Lalit wants to compare attributes from similar events to one another in a table and sort by the columns of the table SO THAT he can use the attribute values to compare the events to one another.

  14. Bar chart and stacked bar chart

    I have summarized energy data for kWh consumption by day for buildings and plant that is written at specific end of shift day week points.

    I'd like to be able to have this display as a stacked bar where the various plant consumption components are shown as a proportion of the bar and the height of the bar is the sum of the components.

    Classic stacked bar chart.

  17. Calculation Engine based on time range

    My feedback is to include a PE type calculations in Coresight similar to Datalink.
    The calculations should work with the time range selected.
    Options should be similar to Datalink avg, min, max, total, range etc...

    It would also be great to include basic arithmetic calculations to use against multiple PI Tag inputs and output the live calculation to a PI Value on screen.
    e.g PI Tag A + PI Tag B

  18. Allow sharing a display with edit permission

    As a display creator, I want to give other users edit permission on the display so we can collaborate in creating the display and so that other users from my team can make needed changes when I'm not available.

  19. Multiple y Axis

    Currently ProcessBook and coresight trend only provide one Y axis.
    We would to have 2 Y axis to plot different parameter for an asset. Example: Flow parameters can be plotted on Y axis on the left and temperature can be plotted on Y axis on the right"

    Each trend in trend group must have one horizontal (X axis) and two vertical axis (Left Y and right Y). Users should be able to assign a tag plot to either of the Y axis in trend
